Today the nursery children had lots of fun at their first Christmas party. They played pass the parcel, musical bumps and musical statues. They had lots of yummy party food and enjoyed hitting the balloons into the air.  A great time was had by all. Thank you to all the parents for your support and contributions.

Today was a very important day for the Nursery children. It was time to post our very special letters that we had written to Father Christmas. We have been working very hard to write our own names and draw pictures of the toys we would like to receive.  We learnt about road safety and how to cross the road with our friends. When we came back we had a special treat of hot chocolate and toast. 

Monday 15th November

The children in Nursery have been thinking about the fallen soldiers of the First World War. 

They used tissue paper, buttons, card, beads and felt tips to create their picture of a poppy.

Numberblocks Day

Today was nursery's Numberblocks day. We all came to nursery dressed in our favourite Numberblocks colour. We also brought in objects that matched our number. We had so much fun exploring numbers in the water with magnets, rolling out numbers in the playdough, making our own individual hats and hunting for Numberblocks around our garden.  Well done to everyone. Numbers and counting is so much fun!!

Happy Diwali

This week, the children in nursery have been finding out all about the 'festival of light'.  We have made Rangoli  patterns using 2D shapes and coloured sand. We listened to the story about Rama and Sita and we used out pre-writing skills to draw mehndi patterns on the outline of our hands. We enjoyed listening to special Diwali music and found out how families decorate their homes and celebrate with each other. Below is a celebration of our amazing work.


Friday 22nd October

I would like to say a huge well done to all the nursery children for settling in so well  to their first half term in nursery. The tears at the door have now turned into great big smiles. It has been a pleasure to get to know each and everyone of them and their families. 

This week we have been reading  Christopher Pumpkin by Sue Hendra. We had lots of opportunities to find out all about pumpkins. We rolled them, carved them, scooped out the seeds and used hammers and nails to attached 2D shapes to them. Our favourite activity was designing our own faces on them and talking about what we are going to do with our own pumpkins at home. 


Monday 6th October 2021

During Science week, the nursery children explored the school field for Autumn treasures. We found sticks, leaves, petals and berries. We brought them back to nursery to explore them in more detail. The Nursery children also explored their local area with their family and brought in what they had found. We learnt new describing words. Crunchy, prickly, smooth, and bumpy were a few of our special words. We counted the leaves, explored their colour and compared the size of the sticks. The sun was shining and we all enjoyed putting on our wellie boots for the first time at nursery.  

Thursday 16th September

Our first week is complete and what a busy week we have all had! I am so proud of all the new nursery children and their families. It has been a week of change and the children have coped very well. I am really looking forward to the year ahead and watching all the children flourish and grow. We have lots of exciting learning opportunities planned, which will engage the children and allow them to progress through the Foundation Stage. Below are a small sample of the fun activities we have participated in this week.
